This is the place where all the GovBlocks documentation (or links to documentations) resides.

What is GovBlocks?

We describe GovBlocks as an open, permissionless protocol for decentralized governance enabling adaptability, self-sustainability and easy management of blockchain applications. It enables dApp developers to define, incentivize and manage their stakeholders and processes.

GovBlocks is built as a multifactorial governance framework that enables 1) configurable governance models for blockchain applications and 2) creation of a new class of management tools, classified as Decentralized Resource Planning tools for managing resources of a decentralized community.

It provides an enhanced and dynamic governance layer, capable of managing a large, varied and constantly growing range of factors of blockchain networks.

More details can be found in the Whitepaper


GovBlocks architecture is comprised of:

GovBlocks Protocol

Decision protocol written in solidity with key features of configurable member roles, reputation parameters, financial stake locking, incentives, optimized on-chain voting and decision implementation. dApps can use this protocol to configure governance models on a sliding-scale moving from loosely coupled to tightly coupled governance.

Currently in v0.5 maintained as a private repo in GitHub.

GovBlocks JS

Javascript wrapper around GovBlocks Protocol that can be used by businesses to move their decision making (and governance) on blockchain, while keeping the rest of the business off-chain.

Currently in v0.5 maintained as a private repo in GitHub.

GovBlocks Network Apps

Applications that use either the GovBlocks protocol or javascript wrapper.

GovBlocks Network Browser

A front end application where users can see all the dApps that are using the GovBlocks Protocol. While users can view activities for all apps, they can only participate in governance processes of the dApps for which they hold tokens.

This browser shall also be used to build an expertise bank with the idea of getting together independent developers, financial experts, auditors and also eventually regulators to start providing services to dApps - even if they don’t hold dApp tokens.
